limiting reagents

Postby Clarissa Nava 3H » Sat Dec 08, 2018 7:05 pm

is the limiting reagent of a reaction the reactant that is consumed first or the one that ultimately dictates the amount of product produced in the given reaction?

The limiting reagent is both. If a reactant runs out first, then the amount of product produced is limited to however much reactant there is, Therefore, the limiting reagent is the reactant that runs out first and would thus dictate how much product could be produced.
